      Actually, I first joined this list in October of 2002.
      I recently changed my email address and joined with
      the new email address. The old address is

      I am the mother of a Waldorf student in Southern
      California and am here to learn more about the
      philosophy behind my daughter's education.

      I have been trying to read "Philosophy of Freedom" but
      often have to put it down for weeks to absorb the 2
      pages that I have just read. At the rate I'm going it
      will take me years to finish the book.

      I've been working with the "Calendar of the Soul" and
      prefer the translation with the Edith Bierman series
      but I also like the thought provoking symbols that
      Starman sends out.

      My current anthroposiphical pondering is related to
      the "Calendar of the Soul". I often think about the
      verse as I am walking down the arroyo. In Southern
      California, at this time of the year nature seems to
      be coming alive after a long summer sleep. The grass
      is growing, the birds, and animals are becoming more
      active after the first rains of autumn. Only the
      trees seem to be preparing for the rest of Winter.

      In fact, this week I seem to be jumbling two verses
      together. The first line of this weeks verse is:
      "The light from the depths of the Spirit". I have a
      tendency to exchange it with "the light from the
      expanses of the universe."

      Similiarly, I am transposing the current line "and
      shines into the dullness of the senses" with "and
      shines into the depth of the spirit".

      I'm thinking the mixed up California seasons are
      jumbling the spring and fall soul calendar verses.

      Have Fun,
